Is Charter Hall under- or over-valued?
Valuing Charter Hall stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Charter Hall's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Charter Hall's P/E ratio
Charter Hall's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 17x. In other words, Charter Hall shares trade at around 17x recent earnings.
That's relatively low compared to, say, the P/E ratio for the ASX over the 12 months to December 2019 (32.14). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.
Charter Hall's EBITDA
Charter Hall's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $580 million (£0.0 million).
The EBITDA is a measure of a Charter Hall's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Charter Hall share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 65.2% of net profits
Recently Charter Hall has paid out, on average, around 65.2% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.1% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Charter Hall shareholders could enjoy a 2.1% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Charter Hall's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.379 per share.
Charter Hall's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Charter Hall's shares ever split?
Charter Hall's shares were split on a 1:4 basis on 11 November 2010. So if you had owned 4 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Charter Hall shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 300% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Charter Hall shares which in turn could have impacted Charter Hall's share price.
Charter Hall share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Charter Hall's shares have ranged in value from as little as $11.3873 up to $19.155. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (AU average) beta is 1, while Charter Hall's is 1.0262. This would suggest that Charter Hall's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
